Murderers need something to fear



To the editor:

The majority has spoken and Maryland's governor needs to drop it. Murderers need to have consequences as severe as their crimes. It's a tragic insult to victims' families and friends to be forced to house the criminal for a lifetime and provide access to attorneys, food, entertainment, heat and air conditioning, etc., while taxpayers are forced to support them. We earn our living and they take it. Also, the system shouldn't allow them to delay execution for years at our expense with appeals, etc.

Why Bruchey should not be re-elected



To the editor:

I'm a 63-year resident of downtown Hagerstown and this is why Bob Bruchey should not be re-elected mayor.

I believe he has proven, in the last few years, that he is not the person he would like any of us to think he is.

When I appeared before the mayor and council, he told me that he circled my block - the same block where The Herald-Mail is - four times a night with a floodlight from his car!

"Hey, Honey! I'm gonna circle Harold's house again. I'll be back!" Yeah, sure!

This was because I had been beaten and robbed behind my own home at 149 Summit Ave. and left for dead in the alley near my garage. The police, as usual, would do nothing about it.

A few months ago, the beautiful old 19th-century carriage house behind the vacant house next door was gutted by fire.

Recently my other next door neighbor's truck was burned.

What this boils down to is that, despite repeated pleas from the residents of downtown Hagerstown to him and the entire council, which I also think should be completely replaced, the downtown area is getting worse each day. Thanks to the Hagerstown mayor and his affiliates, it's slowly growing toward too late!

Four concerts for $45!



To the editor:

Hagerstown Community Concert Association last week presented one of its best concerts at The Maryland Theatre.

Baritone Daniel Narducci displayed outstanding talent and his piano accompanist was superb. I encourage Hagerstown subscribers who missed the concert to go to Waynesboro on Saturday, April 18, at 7:30 p.m. to experience Narducci.

The concert association is about to begin its membership campaign for the 2009-10 concert season. I encourage music lovers to explore the four offerings of the new series. What a bargain - four concerts for only $45. For more information, please call 301-739-3756.
